Types of net leases
There are standard names in the commercial real estate industry for different sets of costs passed on to the tenant in a net lease. Double and triple-net leases are more common forms of net leases.
Single net lease (N)
In a single net lease (sometimes shortened to Net or N), the lessee or tenant is responsible for paying property taxes as well as the base rent.
Double net lease (NN)
In a double net lease (Net-Net or NN) the lessee or tenant is responsible for property tax and building insurance. The lessor or landlord is responsible for any expenses incurred for structural repairs and common area maintenance. “Roof and structure” is sometimes calculated as a reserve amount, which the tenant must pay.
Triple net lease (NNN)
A triple net lease (Net-Net-Net or NNN) is a lease agreement on a property where the tenant or lessee agrees to pay all real estate taxes, building insurance, and maintenance on the property. In such a lease, the tenant or lessee is responsible for all costs associated with the repair and maintenance of any common area. This form of lease is most frequently used for commercial freestanding buildings. However, it has also been used in single family residential rental real estate properties.
Bondable lease (Absolute NNN)
A bondable lease (also called an “absolute triple net lease”, “true triple net lease”, or a “hell-or-high-water lease”) is the most extreme variation of a triple net lease, where the tenant carries every imaginable real estate risk related to the property. Notably, these additional risks include the obligations to rebuild after a casualty, regardless of the adequacy of insurance proceeds, and to pay rent after partial or full condemnation. These leases are not terminable by the tenant, nor is it permissible for rent to be abated under them.
The concept is to make the rent absolutely net under all circumstances, equivalent to the obligations of a bond. An example of this type of lease would be a leaseback arrangement in which a retailer leases back the building it formerly owned and continues to run the operate its business at the location.
Typically, triple net leases (NNN) are ‘equity investments’, rather than ‘cash flow investments’. For example, the investor will finance a significant portion of the purchase price on a property and pay the resulting mortgage with the lessee’s monthly owed rent. There is usually a small amount left over as monthly profit for the investor (positive cash flow), but the greater investment payoff comes from the tax shields afforded to the investor through the use of leverage. The resulting property is then sold after a period of building up equity.
Investors buy net leased single tenant properties for a variety of reasons such as no management responsibilities, a long-term lease, credit- worthy high quality tenant, stable cash flow, attractive financing, equity growth, unique tax benefits and good capital gains.
Triple net lease commercial investments are like corporate bonds and are known to be one of the safest and the most solid investments with dependable incomein commercial real estate. The investor in corporate NNN property, not only benefits from the higher yields than bonds or CDs, but also benefits from dependable steady long term income. equity growth, and unique tax incentives such as 1031 exchange in case of the sale, depreciation on improvments and more.
NNN properties offer the benefit of little orno management responsibilities, as the tenant pays for most, if not all, of the expenses according to the terms of the lease. In Triple Net, (NNN) or (Net Net Net) lease tenant pays for the net of taxes, the net of insurance, and the net of maintenance.
Single Tenant NNN properties are typically leased to a single tenant business for a long term, often 10-25 years. Therefore banks due to minimal risk of investments are motivated to provide very attractive financing. Due to a long term lease, Triple net leased tenants generally have a vested business interest to make sure that a location is well maintained and is attractive for all customers. They frequently make significant property improvements at their own expense to enhance the real estate over time in order to be more successful with their customers.
